"The term ‘ephemera’ covers a wide range of documents including leaflets, handbills, tickets, trade cards, programmes and playbills, printed tins and packaging, advertising inserts, posters, newspapers and much more".
Collecting Ephemera is an addiction, it starts with the odd ticket, beermat or invitation and then before you know it you have boxes full of it. I know only too well that desire to find more, so imagine my delight in discovering not only is there an Ephemera Society
, but that it's having an 'Ephemera Society Fair
' this very Sunday (15th) at the Holiday Inn London Bloomsbury!
The Society was established in 1975 for the conservation, study and presentation of printed and handwritten ephemera. Annual membership
is only £20 and members receive a quarterly newsletter, 'The Ephermist' and receive early entry into all the fairs and bazaars held throughout the year - bargain!Via We Made This.
